WLDY-WJBL NEWS 6-25-20 If you have been looking for that totally dry day this work week, then today is your day! The upper trough will be gone with a more flat, westerly flow in the region. A weak high pressure system will be centered more to our south, leading to west and southwest flow along with plenty of sunshine. Though a few afternoon clouds will likely develop, it will stay dry with a warmer afternoon as temperatures return to at least average, in the low to mid 80′s. While we enjoy the drier weather, a front will be making a track through the Northern Plains, heading into Minnesota by Thursday night. Clouds will start to increase and it appears we will be in the running to see at least a few scattered showers and possible thunderstorms arrive before daybreak Friday.

(AP) — The last time President Donald Trump visited Wisconsin he staged a massive, raucous rally at an arena in downtown Milwaukee. When he returns Thursday to the battleground state, he’ll be reminded how much has changed since January. The Republican president planned a trip to conservative, rural Wisconsin for a private tour of a shipyard far from Milwaukee, where coronavirus restrictions now prevent large rallies. A day earlier, the governor activated the National Guard in the capital to protect state property from angry protests against racial injustice. When Trump last campaigned in the state in January, the unemployment rate was 3.5%. Now, 12% of Wisconsin workers are jobless. Trump’s standing in Wisconsin appears to be suffering from the extraordinary period of turmoil, and his visit was part of a concerted effort to shore up support in friendlier areas that can make or break his reelection chances. Besides the visit to Marinette, he intended to participate in a town hall to be broadcast by Fox News Channel from an airport in Green Bay. The trip comes days after he dispatched Vice President Mike Pence to the conservative Milwaukee suburbs. The two parts of Wisconsin targeted by Trump this week — suburban Milwaukee and the Green Bay media market in northeast Wisconsin — are areas where he needs to run up a big vote advantage in November. Some polls have suggested Trump has ground to make up in Wisconsin. A Marquette University Law School poll released Wednesday showed Democrat Joe Biden with an 8 percentage point lead over Trump. Trump trailed Democrat Hillary Clinton in nearly every poll conducted in Wisconsin in 2016 — often by similar margins — before he won the state by fewer than 23,000 votes. A Western Wisconsin woman was sentenced Wednesday for driving in the wrong lane and causing a crash that killed another woman. Christina Wiederin from Somerset was sentenced by Saint Croix County Judge Michael Waterman to 15 years in prison. Wiederin pleaded no contest last month to homicide by driving under the influence. Investigators say her blood-alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit. They also found marijuana and a pipe in her car. Stefanie Biedler, also from Somerset, was killed when Wiederin’s car hit her car head-on as Wiederin drove in the wrong lanes of Highway 35/64 near Somerset. The crash happened several days before Christmas 2018.
